Burglars take £10,000 of gold jewellery

BURGLARS broke into a house by forcing a back window open to steal £10,000 worth of gold jewellery.

They entered the property in Roundwood Road, St Leonards between 11am and 4pm on Friday, 24 August.

Bangladeshi style gold jewellery with an estimated value of £10,000 was stolen from inside.

The stolen items are described as:

- Four 22 carat gold bangles, two are plain and two have large engraved circles all the way round with four smaller circles within;

two 22 carat gold chains with lockets, one is heart shaped with a ‘S’ engraved. The other is shaped like a rose.

- Two sets of 22 carat gold earrings. One pair has two flower designs and the other pair are shaped like neckties.

- Three 22 carat gold rings. One is a plain style wedding band. The second band has a small flower design. The third is a plain band with a large flower on the top.

DC Jim Parkinson, of Hastings Priority crime team, said: “These items are of a high value and are clearly sentimental to the owner.

“They are distinctive in their appearance and design. To help us to reunite these items with their owner, I am asking if you are offered the sale of this or part of the described jewellery to call in immediately. Also if you were in the area at the time and noticed someone behaving suspiciously, please do call us.”
